That is great. Thank you very much you will learn many new and
exciting things. This is, at least, my experience contributing to the

I pushed the initial files that you sent to the git repo. I must thank
Daniel, once again, for letting me take charge of this.

In respect to the initial files I only changed the header including
your language, your name and email address. The files that you sent
read (you probably copied the header from the German translation

# German translations for live-manual

# This file is distributed under the same license as the live-manual package.

And I changed them into:

# Polish translations for live-manual

# This file is distributed under the same license as the live-manual package.

Second, you might find that there "appeared" some fuzzy strings after
the integration of the files into live-manual, like for example:

-Checking the integrity of about_manual.ssi.po in
68 translated messages, 3 fuzzy translations.
This .po file is 'good': about_manual.ssi.po

This is normal because there are submissions to git on a regular basis
and your files, while they were being translated, soon became out of

Nothing I mentioned above is a problem. I'm just letting you know.

Last but not least, you will be able to see the Polish translation in
the autobuild almost immediately after you receive this mail (provided
everything goes well).

Yeah, translation work takes a lot of time, but like I always say, the
hardest part is keeping it up to date. I mean, translating takes time,
but translations become outdated soon, so the real work, maintaining
it, begins right after one finishes translating.

Victory already sent you the link, please take a look at it and if you
have any doubt, feel free to write to the list or join us on
#debian-live on OFTC. And remember to always push to the debian-next

Best wishes!
